Just installed a preview of Office 2013. I am unable to run Word 2013 and Excel 2013. Powerpoint and Access are running just fine. I am getting the following errors:
Microsoft Word has stopped working
Microsoft Excel has stopped working
I have installed it in a laptop running on Windows 78 64-bit
Heureka! I found a solution that worked for me.
As both Word and Excel run fine in safe mode, do the following:
Open Word in safe mode (as explained above).
Click on File<Options<Add-Ins
Under Manage select COM Add-Ins
Click on GO and uncheck all checked add-inns (in my case ABBYY Finereader....)
and click OK.
You have to repeat this for Excel (where COM Add-ins is not the default choice, just scroll))
Now both apps should work fine.
Did this solve your problem?
Sorry this didn't help.
